Storming deals

First, the hard disk deals. Tesco have a iQon unit, USB2/SATA, £78 delivered: http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.200-2980.aspx. Alternatively, £69 for a Maxtor USB2 disk from PC World: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/product/MAXTOR/STM305004EHCB01-RK/120076. You can collect that in store, although it lacks the eSATA the Tesco drive offers.

And I just found a firm called ledshoppe.com. Many people in the forums I've taken this from are vouching for this company, and if you don't fancy giving your credit card details to them, they take paypal. I bought:

I ordered some "stuff" from them, including a Sata to Ide converter. I have a load of 120gig ide drives and no ide slots left.

A "load"? How many is a "load"?

I'm up to 720Gb in my main box now, and that feels like a lot. As I read on slashdot earlier though, a hard drive only has two states: new and full.

I have 5 unused sat in the garage

O RLY?

Someone come by a lorryload of skipped machines, by some chance?

Surely best thing to do with those is cram all 5 into an old desktop and run a RAID-5 stripe, for half a terabye of reliable storage...

O RLY?

No, brand new.

They were liberated from a potential life of corporate servitude

Well, my stuff turned up. Very very pleased with it. My dinky little 1-CR123 Luxeon Star torch is excellent.

Ditto

My pen/laser pointer/LEd torch/pda stylus for a $5 cam with 3 sets of batteries and 5 spare carts.

Sweet!
